I never heard about a need to "reset" or replace a blend door.

If a/c, you probably need some Freon recharge. My 2005 Bonneville had this problem with the a/c. I looked at the blend doors for hours, before getting a clue about the low Freon. You'll probably need to go to the dealer or an a/c specialist to have it checked. It may ony need 1/2 a can of Freon to fix.

SOURCE: air conditioning

On a w body car with a single temp adjustment control (not a dual zone) your problem should be a low refrigerant charge. Due to the design of this evaporator, a low refrigerant charge will cause the furthest areas from the inlet and outlet hoses (the drivers side) to not remove the heat from the incoming air. This allows the air on the drivers side to be outside temp but refrigerated on the passenger side. In cars with Dual Zone controls you must not only verify the refrigerant charge level, but also check the mode doors which control the air flow and regulate the temp. To check the refrigerant level do not use pressure gauges alone. Verify a proper charge level by checking the temperature of the two aluminum lines going in to the firewall of the vehicle. With the A/C set to high the temperatures should be within 5 degrees of each other. If not, then there is a charge issue. I hope this helps

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Aztek power windows do not work when

Inside the door is a pair of rods, connecting a wire in a figure 8 pattern. There are four tiny little plastic tabs that surprisingly, break off fairly easily. I had mine break off when A GPS suction cup prevented the window from going down in auto mode and the window dropped into the door. Without those four plastic tabs, there is no way to connect anything and you have to get an entire new assembly for your window. You might be able to fabricate yourself some new ones, but if you can do that, then you're not on this site to begin with. The dealership wants an arm and a leg, but the unit is fairly self explanatory as long as you're comfortable taking your door apart and working on it yourself.

I just replaced a a/c heater blower motor resistor and now I have hot air on drivers side and cold air on passengers side and in the rear. .

Sounds like driver side blend door is not functioning, either actuator bad or door has broken, remove actuator see if door moves freely, if door moves freely test actuator, leave out and connect wiring, move controls from cold to hot see if actuator moves.

Need to reset blent door actuater on 2000 ponyiac bonnevile

I never heard about a need to "reset" a blend door.
Are you trying to fix a condition where the passenger side blows hot or cold, but opposite the temperature of the driver side?

If a/c, you probably need some Freon recharge. If heat, check your coolant level.
My 2005 Bonneville had this problem with the a/c. I looked at the blend doors for hours, before getting a clue about the low Freon.

It sounds like your passenger air mix actuator is broken. I believe many LeSabre's have seperate driver/passenger air control.

If you dual climate control sounds like it the mode door actuator that controls driver and passenger temp. If it went bad again then there is something wrong with the mode door itself causing the actuator to short out

Hello, this is cused by the drivers side temp door actuator. there are two electric motors that move the temp doors from cold to hot. there is one on the drivers side and one on the passenger side. you will need to replace the one for the drivers side.

    2000 lincoln ls ac is blowing hot air on pass side

    On the central console is the A/C module. Inside A/C module are driver's side & passenger's side air flaps for mixing hot & cold air and directed air flows towards driver's side & passenger's side according to driver commands. The passenger's side flap for mixing hot & cold air according to driver commands is bad. Flaps are actuated by electrical step by step motors. Could be damaged the flap actuator (motor), the flap mechanism (blocked in "HOT" air position), and / or electrical supply wires. You must access the passenger's side flap for mixing hot & cold air, and see what happens when you command cold air to the driver's side: flap mechanism, flap actuator, supply wires, ... Repair & replace bad pieces and test the A/C system.

    Cold air on passenger side warm air on drivers side

    Actuator motors either get a tear in the rubber or a hose is broken and not letting vacuum assist in its opening.
    You can try moving the lever by hand and see if the air gets colder on the bad side.c976077.jpg
